An investor bought 100 shares of Copier Corp. for \$90 a share. The firm paid an annual dividend of \$4 a share and commissions on the purchase were \$15 and on the sale were another \$15. The price of the stock rose to \$120 in one year.

What is the percentage return earned on the investment if the stock is bought for cash (i.e., the investor did not use margin)?

Show your answer in percentage terms to two places to the right of the decimal point (e.g., “00.00%). But do not include the percent sign (%). If the correct answer is a negative value, then do include the negative sign (“-“) with your answer.

 Return earned on investment (Net sales + Dividend - Net purchase)/Net purchase Cost of purchase (100*90)+15 Cost of purchase 9000+15 Cost of purchase 9015 Cost of sale (100*120)-15 Cost of sale 12000-15 Cost of sale 11985 Total dividend received 4*100 Total dividend received 400 Return earned on investment (11985+400-9015)/9015 Return earned on investment 3370/9015 Return earned on investment 37.38% Thus, return earned on investment is 37.38%
